Why is "ruckus" rejected by battletag?

  • I wanted to use "ruckus" as my battletag id but it was rejected. It's not a bad word and it's a handle I've been using for a while, so I would like to continue using it. Is this just an error that I could expect to be fixed? Would really appreciate a reply on this, thanks.
  • Ruckus,

    Currently, for reasons I can't go into, the Battle Tag naming restrictions won't allow the character string "ku" to be used. Select another name for now, one you'll be able to to live with for a while. We hope to be able to allow them to be changed in the future but we've no way to know when that might occur.

  • Kamano,

    I've been told the "fix" is coming soon, but you know how that goes :)

    People shouldn't hesitate in making a name, even if temporary, if they want to play the Beta.

    As it says on the FAQ, "We plan to provide a way for players to change their BattleTags in the future, but we don't have any further details to share just yet."
